I've been feeling miserable for a few years now but this week has been particularly horrible on me. I googled the symptoms of depression online and out of the 8 listed I can say yes to 7 of them.

I've been having horrible thoughts of death.

I've been telling my mom how miserable I am and that I am really very depressed but it doesnt seem to matter to her. She doesn't get the hint that im really unhappy and im trying to tell her.

Everyone keeps telling me how I should be happy, I have it easy but I dont feel happy at all. Yes im greatful for the things I have but im not happy.

I just...don't know what to do and feel like I dont have anyone to talk to.

1. No discussion of any illegal activity or threats of violence. (ie. illicit drug use or exchange, threats of suicide or self-injury, or threatened or intended physical harm). Discussions of suicide or self-harm that are deemed negative and therefore potentially injurious to others are also not permitted.

I am so sorry you are feeling so strongly. If you feel you need emergency help, please call 1-800-SUICIDE. They can connect you with a local crisis center & get you help immediately.

If you would like to keep posting, I am sure other members would love to post to you & welcome you to Healing Well. Please remember that the rules do not allow discussions of violence or self-harm. You are welcome to post about feeling depressed & asking for ideas.

I am wondering whether there is anything that you can do that still makes you feel happy. Even if it is only one thing, often that can be a starting place for healing. Is there anything you can think of like that in your life? If not, what used to make you feel happy?

take care,
